Lets have a look at the website (Please click on the images for larger view)
I loved the Jewellery section. Every piece looks beautiful. I couldn’t stop myself from buying couple of ear-rings in sterling silver and they were decently priced !!
You can browse through number of categories like Home Decor, clothing, bags, bath & beauty, home furnishings, sarees or directly go to the shops. There is an option on the top-right side of the home page where you can choose from . I must tell you that the collection is HUGE .. when I say huge it means thousands of options to choose from… isn’t it amazing !! You can further narrow down your search by price or type of product.
